Abstract

The organization of a practicum class in oral English for training M.A. students in the EFL/ESL program at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale is described. The obligations to the foreign students that they practice with impose important constraints on the procedures, and the coordination of both groups with video-taping facilities requires even more attention to management of the needs of both groups. A general philosophy of practicum classes is offered, comprising an analysis of the requirements of both groups and a series of solutions for compatible and productive interaction. A rationale for specific tasks and dialogueoriented teaching materials is given, as well as a justification of the multiple-variant dialogue-alternatives which form the basis of the course. It is suggested here that this model, either in the minimal form presented or in any proportionate expansion of it, can be utilized in any teacher-training program.
